Larry Wallace resigned as a senior adviser to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., on Wednesday after a report of a $400,000 sexual harassment settlement over an incident alleged to have taken place while he worked for Harris in California in 2016.
Harris was California's attorney general at the time of the alleged incident, and Wallace was the state Department of Justice's director of law enforcement. The settlement came after Harris was sworn in as senator and Harris was hired as a Sacramento-based senior advisor.
